Wedding gifts

We had an incredible wedding last Saturday. The forecast was for heavy rain, but it rained in the morning, early afternoon and late in the evening, but our wedding was in the late afternoon and so we were incredibly lucky. I've put a selection of photographs taken by Ian and Kitty Wright on our wedding website.

Since Ian and I have already been living together for five years we decided to ask guests to contribute towards our honeymoon rather than to get us gifts, but a few people were kind enough to get us some keepsakes to remind us of the day.

This adorable glitter globe (can one call them snowglobes if they don't have snow?) was from my Dad, Jo and Rich. Ian took it to the ceremony venue and placed it on the table that we sat at to sign the register.

This lovely wall plaque was sent all the way from the other side of the Atlantic by the Canadian Chickadee and English Robin. We've hung it on our kitchen wall so we can see it every day. Thanks again to you both for the lovely surprise.

My Mum brought us these lovely flowers two days before the wedding and we decided to take them along to the ceremony to decorate the room:

Thank you to everyone who made our day so special.


  1. It was a wonderful day for your guests too. I'm glad that the 40% triumphed!

  2. A day of superlatives, thank you to you both for a wonderful time.
